Dear all

A related (or is it the same?) question would be, once two reasonably
fitting sequences (or more) are found, to do voice leading, i.e., to
combine these sequences to build new sequences giving the same
"chords" but in a smoother manner (typically, e.g., to avoid crossing hands
if playing the piano).
